Rouhani Berates Idea of New Nuclear Deal

President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday questioned the legitimacy of demands for a fresh nuclear agreement with Tehran, after the US and French presidents floated the idea of a “new deal”.
Rouhani spoke after French President Emmanuel Macron flew to Washington to try to persuade President Donald Trump not to scrap the 2015 agreement--under which Iran curbed its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions, Reuters reported.
“They say that with a certain leader of a European country we want to make a decision about a seven-sided agreement,” Rouhani said.
“For what? With what right?” he added.
With a May 12 deadline looming for Trump to decide on restoring US economic sanctions on Tehran, Macron said he spoke to Trump on Tuesday about a “new deal” in which the United States and Europe would tackle the outstanding concerns about Iran beyond its nuclear program.
Rouhani reserved particular scorn for the US president, who has called the agreement one of the worst deals ever negotiated.
